😜 Hi!

Does anyone here like Doricamu - Dreams Come True?
Well, I don't know them pretty well, but I like their songs a lot. :sing:

I just wanted to tell u that they have a website, where you can watch to videos, listen to the radio, among other cool stuff. 👍 So if anyone wants to listen to the news about them but doesn't live in Japan...

www.dctgarden.com

I bet you're gonna like it! 😄

Yoshida Miwa is BABE! She's got a big mouth though.

She did cosmetic comericals for Shiseido years back, I think.

Their hometown is up by me in Hokkaido. Just outside of Obihiro in a place called Ikeda-cho.

Miwa is very talented I think.

i like the band mostly because of her voice. :sing:

differently from the average female japanese singer, she's got a full voice (nihongo dewa 'hikui' tte yuu no kana?), besides strong, what makes her unique, in my opinion.

hikui = low or deep, but I wonder if it's used in this fashion like you mentioned for a "full" voice. hmmm

full, wide, varied = haba hiroi
But I wouldn't say haba hiroi for a voice. Dang, I just woke up sorry. I wonder if Miyuki will stop by :)

here's the explanation (i just asked my mom):

low pitch / high pitch voice = hikui / takai koe

;)

Dreams Come True

What do you think of them?

I start listening to them when I was in Australia, and when I met my girl... she was leaving me for some travel for a couple of weeks and dreams made me always happy, or sad...

I love their music. There voices, there just Great...

it's not so POPIE, and maybe that's what I like about them... one of my favs is the English one about walking in the snow... ( i can't understand Japanese Yet...)

Dreams come true made me a better person, more sensitive somehow, but yeah what's wrong with that, ... Live is Beautiful, Enjoy it... Please

I have always been a fan and I really enjoy Miwa Yoshida's voice. I especially love "Winter Song", a popular selection with many of my karaoke friends, heh.

Dreams Come True's new Japanese language album, The Love Rocks, which was released February 22nd, is now the #1 album on the Oricon Charts!

I've downloaded the album last week, and it's another great album again!!! Hope some others will listen to their music!

Song Jet, from the new album!!! Tell us what you think of it?

I actually think that DTC is more mature than most Jpop jrock here, so yeah just that people know it is not JPOP POP POP music!!! but just Really GOOD music, from one of the best selling Japanese bands of the world with over 30million record sells

I'm not a major fan, but their music is quite good. I have the DELICIOUS cd. They're not qute to my taste, but they do have a very catchy sound. 😌

You're right, they are much more mature than most Japanese pop that I've ever heard, probably because they've been around for so long. (My dad got their cd when he was in Japan somewhere between ten and seven years ago.)

I found out that they even made a Dreams come actual Arcade Game !!😌

Dancing Stage featuring Dreams Come True is a 1999 Konami arcade game dedicated to the group's music. Dancing Stage is part of the famous Dance Dance Revolution series.

The song list (in order of increasing difficulty): Love Love Love, Haretara ii ne, Ureshii! Tanoshii! Daisuki!, Snow Dance, go on, baby!, Kessen was Kin'youbi, Peace!, Nante koi shita n daro, Asa ga mata kuru, It's So Delicious, Lovetide, Ring! Ring! Ring!, Opening Theme (The Monster is Coming)

It later became a Japanese Playstation game (April 2000, SLPM-86505) also released by Konami. It has the same base song list as the arcade version.

There is a unique feature called Greatest Hits mode, where you can insert the discs from The Soul and increase the number of songs you can dance to (Ano Natsu no Hanabi & LAT.43ツ≫?ケN from Disc 1 and Mirai Yosouzu II & Sankyu from Disc 2).

I just watched their "Osaka Lover" video at their dctgarden.com, and I LOVED it! 😍
I never expected that Miwa-chan would sing in Osaka-ben, but she can sing in English that well, why not in Osaka-ben? :D
The song is so cute that I keep listening to it over and over again.
Dutch-san, did you check it out yet?

I have checked the song out, and I like it a lot. It's funny that she sings in Kansai ben.

They have a new rollarcoaster in Universtal studio's Japan (Osaka), and in seats they have an inbuild speakerset, where people will hear "Osaka Lover".

Check this link.

Ah, thank you, Dutch san!
I love rollarcoaster, I'd really love to ride it!

I sang this Osaka Lover at Karaoke the other day, but it was a bit too hard for me! >_<
